Title: A Neutrally Charged Trimethylmanganese(III) Complex: Synthesis, Characterization, and Disproportionation Chemistry

The synthesis and properties of an unusual, neutrally charged and volatile N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine trimethyl manganese(III) complex, (TMEDA)MnMe3, are described, along with its facile disproportionation to the corresponding Mn(II) and Mn(IV) complexes. Characterization by single-crystal XRD, UV-vis spectroscopy, high-frequency and -field EPR (HFEPR), magnetic susceptibility, and density functional theory (DFT) computations indicate that the (TMEDA)MnMe3 electronic structure can be described as largely square pyramidal Mn(III) centered. The paucity of manganese(III) polyalkyls and the simplicity and reactivity of this compound implicate it as a potentially useful synthetic building block.
